It’s a new year! Have you embarked on any nutrition-related goals? After the indulgences of the holidays, it’s always nice to enjoy a mental reset and eat a little more mindfully. To me, eating mindfully doesn’t mean dieting (I don’t do dieting) but I do pay more attention to what I’m putting in my mouth. And that basically means, eat more vegetables, eat less cookies. Eat more fruits, eat less bread.
A great way to sneak some healthy leafy greens and fruits into your day is to enjoy a breakfast smoothie. I love this Triple Berry Green Smoothie because it contains a full cup of spinach, and you can’t even taste it! Hidden healthiness is never a bad thing 😉
This recipe would be great to serve your kids – they’ll never know there’s spinach hiding in it! And there’s no green colour that gives it away either.
Every since I received a Vitamix blender as a wedding gift, I have been sipping tons of smoothies. My go-to smoothie is my Everyday Green Smoothie, but this variation loaded with berries is a welcome change!
(Psst, you don’t need a Vitamix blender to make a great smoothie! Just do yourself a favour and get an upgrade from the cheapest $20 blender sold in stores. This option is so affordable – $69!! – and powerful!)
I’m feeling excited for what 2017 has in store for Breakfast for Dinner. I’ve got lots of fresh recipe ideas in store (my Google doc is overflowing!) and I’ve been listening to tons of podcasts over the holidays for extra inspiration. AND it’s getting brighter in the mornings and evenings, which means it will be easier to snap photos of my recipes – literally to snap this photo, I had to wait until 8:15am, until the light was half-decent, and then had 15 minutes to quickly snap the photos before I had to run out the door for work! Hectic!!
Cheers to 2017 and to breakfast smoothies!
